I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU WASH YOUR TRESSES BEFORE INSTALLING BECAUSE RAW HAIR IS A COARSE TEXTURE & NEEDS MOISTURE SO WITHOUT WASHING IT MAYBE A LIL TANGLY.
Before wetting your hair make sure to comb through gently with a wig brush or wide tooth comb from bottom to top.
1) Rinse hair thoroughly with lukewarm water then apply shampoo. Not everyone uses shampoo, some prefer to just deep condition with conditioner but I suggest using shampoo because it will remove any dirt from the hair.
2) After washing with shampoo, apply conditioner and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Conditioner helps detangle the hair, find its curl pattern and adds moisture to the hair. You MUST condition the hair to prevent it from tangling or frizzing.
3) Then, rinse the hair with warm water and let your bundles air dry for the BEST results. You can blow dry on warm temperature but I recommend you let your bundles air dry so the moisture in the hair can sit.
PLEASE DO NOT DRENCH YOUR TRESSES IN ALOT OF DIFFERENT PRODUCTS AND OILS. Using numerous of products will leave the hair greasy, less silky and causes build up. I suggest applying oils 1 or 2 a week to reduce friction damage.
RAW hair IS NOT to be treated like VIRGIN hair, treat raw hair like its your own! Raw hair needs moisture so oils is the best thing to use when styling the hair. I DO NOT suggest using spritz because it makes the hair dry, tangly and not easy to comb through.
Raw Curly and Raw Wavy can bleach to #613. Raw Bone Straight CAN NOT bleach to #613 but it still will lift just not too light. Bone straight hair is a strong texture processed to make the hair bone straight. So I RECOMMEND you NOT to bleach bone straight hair, if you do use a 40 vol. developer but all other textures YES.
